‘Hazel’ packaging inserts that slow down the ripening process of many fruits and vegetables.

 Hazel creates packaging inserts, or sachets, that release ethylene inhibitors and other natural chemicals to slow down the ripening process of many fruits and vegetables. In almost all plants, senescence is accelerated by ethylene gas, a hormone that plants produce as they age or are damaged. For decades, 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) gas has been used to inhibit ethylene action in plants and produce industrially. Despite the near-universality of ethylene in plant senescence, 1-MCP is us...

Queen Mary University of London research suggest bees are smart and can learn the task by observing and also pass down skills through several generations of learners, ensuring its longevity in the population.

Pulling strings to obtain food is an experiment often used to test the intelligence of apes and birds, but it is the first time this technique has been discovered in an insect. Moreover the cultural spread of such a technique from a single informed individual has also been described for the first time in an invertebrate animal. The results, published in PLOS Biology,  show that rare innovator bees were able to solve the problem of pulling the string to reach a sugar water reward by themsel...
